[Clive Cussler fan club] Re: Sahara - the Fight
- the movie was entertaining. I saw the movie before I read the
book. Usually I do it the other way around. I liked the casting
other than giordino. I just don't picture him as the guy for that
role. Although I can't exactly picture anyone perfect, but I
pictured giordino a little larger. Not taller. Had I never read
the book, the movie could stand on it's own as a fair piece of work.
I wasn't sorry i watched it by any means, but i didn't go away
thinking WOW. Would have liked to see more of the myth of the Texas
in the movie. Let the Abe lincoln story play out a bit. It is a
little known myth that deserves some time.
